Business Cards

We design, print & deliver thousands of high quality business cards every week, which is truly no exaggeration. Most printers only offer you a few basic styles and stocks to choose from for your business cards, but not at Little Guy Press. Please review some of our options below and we think you’ll agree that we go far beyond the norm when it comes to providing you with a multitude of premium business card choices. And yes, we also give free delivery for business cards orders if you are within our free delivery area. So call us and ask for Mary to discuss your next business card order today! We are anxious to hear from you.

Stock Choices Available Upon Request

Non-Bleeds vs Full Bleeds

The term “Bleeds” means that there will be printing on your business cards all the way to the trim of the card. If you are supplying us with “print ready artwork” and you want to have your business card bleed, please be sure to make your card ⅛” larger on all sides with your image extending an extra ⅛” beyond the trim as well. See samples below.

Full Bleeds

No Bleeds

Standard Business Card Ink Color Choices

Business Cards are available with printing on one side or both sides.

Printing color choices are: Black, Black & Spot Color, Spot Colors or 4 Color Process or as shown below.


Spot Colors

Black & Spot Color

4 Color Process

Raised Printing

Raised Printing is a great way to add a distinction of class to your business cards. If you are considering having raised printing on your business cards, Little Guy Press supplies a wide range of raised printing options for you to choose from, but there are also some perimeters that must be kept in mind. All raised printing can only be used for solid color vector images and type, but cannot be used for any continuous tone images. As a rule, continuous tone images are halftones, duotones, and most 4 Color Process images. See below for an example of continuous tone images vs vector images. If you aren’t sure about the difference or what you have for artwork, just send it to us. We are happy to help you with that at no extra charge.
